    Hi Bruce

    Would be nice to know where yu have those Actions in AMS and what isn't working about it?
    What's happening your end when you try this?
    Any error msgs etc?

    Check the obvious first: file names are correct, location addresses are correct etc.

        Re: POWER POINT

        It runs fine here Bruce. Check the address and filename are correct .. that your pointing AMS to the correct place etc.
        Check also that the file will open ok in powerpoint... corrupt, perhaps?

          Re: POWER POINT

          Ahhh this sucks! (lol) It says: the "PowerPoint Viewer Can't Read C:\Documents and Settings\Bruce\My Documents\Autoplay Media Studio\pptest\Distrabution\pprun\EAT THIS!.ppt

          It does work out side of AMS and I have gone so far as to start from scratch using the "How To" on the site!
          Any other ideas? (I'm afraid it's going to be something really stupid on my part).

            Re: POWER POINT

            I don't know if its a typo in your message, but Distrabution should be Distribution.

            And if you putting in the whole path, use %SrcDir%\pprun\EAT THIS!.ppt instead

              Hey Worm!
              LOL yeah it was a typo and no i'm not inputing the whole path in. I am doing as you wrote "%SrcDir%\pprun\EAT THIS!" I did notice that when I tried the ver. # 3 executible it was doing the same thing. Very weird! Should I reinstall AMS?

                My opinion: ppview32.exe is still a 16 bit program. So it won't handle filenames >8 characters. And shure not a space in the middle.
                Rename it and I think it will work.
                programming is very easy, just put the characters in the right order....

                    Are you ready for a laugh... [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

                    Put quotation marks around your command line arguments like this:

                    <IR_ACTIONS_LIST>
                    <Action name="Execute">
                    <Type>8</Type>
                    <Function>0</Function>
                    <DTIndentLevel>0</DTIndentLevel>
                    <Enabled>1</Enabled>
                    <ErrorHandling>
                    <UserNotificationMode>2</UserNotificationMode>
                    <CustomErrorMessage/>
                    <OnErrorAction>0</OnErrorAction>
                    <JumpToLabel/>
                    </ErrorHandling>
                    <FileName>%SrcDir%\pprun\ppview32.exe</FileName>
                    <CommandLine>"%SrcDir%\pprun\present\PC.PPT"</CommandLine>
                    <WorkingDir/>
                    <RunMode>0</RunMode>
                    <WaitForReturn>0</WaitForReturn>
                    </Action>
                    </IR_ACTIONS_LIST>
